Multiple language community
not sure if this is associated with “Multi-Language”:
Is MultiSite plugin suitable for such purpose? That would be awesome.
I’m also looking for a solution to set up individual buddypress instances with different languages but with the same user base. So a user who has registered on http://www.domain.org would also be able to log in on http://de.domain.org.
Sure the user has to enter his profile details again for each language version he choose, but he can use one username and password to get logged in o whatever language version he wants.
This would be similar on what wikipedia is doing. They have different instances of mediawiki for each language, but you can change between these instances without an additional log in.
I’m actually working on something to do this (and a little more) right now.
It won’t be available for a few weeks yet (even as a beta) but it includes po/mo editing, user to user Google AJAX translating, and sub-directory URL interception for SEO.
Wow JJJ, thats great news! If there is something i can do to support ur project please let me know, i’m willing to help with this!
I am also interested to help out JJJ. Since I might want to use such an enhancement. I might not be able to do much code debugging, but testing on the local environment.
You can probably imagine it’s a rather large and complicated plugin, but when it’s ready for beta it will make it into the WordPress plugin repository for download and feedback.
regarding your Multi-Language-Plugin, just wondering if there are any news to this ?
I am looking towards running my BP-website (one WPMU-install website) in 2 languages.
hmmm….seems like Jozik is the only one who figured how to make a proper ML-plugin ?
Is there anybody out there who already runs a BP-website with 2 or more languages ? Would be cool to have a look at it.
@Johnjamesjacoby – I realize you’re busy guy – but any update on this. I’m looking for a simple plugin that will simply let a user change the BP interface language. google translation would be great but not essential.
This plugin claims to do the job. It claims to be easy as well.
WPML’s showcase includes samples of blogs, full websites and even multilingual BuddyPress portals.
There are two popular solutions for regular WordPress (not sure how they would work with BuddyPress… I guess they would only translate the blog portion of the site). The two options are WPMU and qTranslate. WPMU make a separate post for each language while qTranslate puts all languages in one post separated by special comment tags. I found the management of a WMPU blog to be confusing. qTranslate has a simple tabbed user interface… so within your edit page for your posts… you get a tab for each language.
@johnjamesjacoby – did anything happen with the multi-site project you were working on.
I tried to use WPML with the Buddypress component they released, and while it works somewhat there are some serious bugs. The biggest is that if you have a group name that ends in en/ such as groups/tennis-open/admin that gets changed by WPML to groups/tennis-opadmin. Very not good! And there are myriad other small issues.
I’ve posted multiple times on their blog and forum with zero response. very strange. so for now stay away from this plugin.
anyone else know of a way to do this, perhaps only with cookies. I just need a simple front end only language switcher based on cookies. any direction would be greatly appreciated.
I’m going to try this out, looks promising. http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/qtranslate-buddypress-make-it-work-but
